Chaos as stockpiling of carrier bags enters its second day. More soon.

Carrier bag survivalists gloat that their day has come.
It can be revealed that many wise souls saw this day coming, and have been stockpiling for many months, if not years. Norbert Fulop from Peckham revealed, 'Baggers in the know have been carefully folding their pristine supermarket flimsys inside the so-called Bags for Life and stashing these in cool, dry environments away from direct sunlight'. He went on to display the contents of his Box Room (re-designated the Bag Room in anticipation of the coming crisis).
'There have been some tragedies. Nothing can be more dispiriting than for the inexperienced bagger to find that some of the biodegradeable carriers have quietly disintegrated into mysterious confetti. When experimenting with a new supermarket brand, it is always wise to 'double bag' your bags, just in case things turn ugly in the dark'.
Meanwhile, collectors of branded carriers from a variety of outlets are finding their 'plastic gold' commanding a high price. 'An old Woolworths carrier may be worth as much as fifty pee now', gushed a collector. Meanwhile post-modernists are flaunting PoundLand and Lidl bags at prestige events in a new ironic trend dubbed 'wanking'.
I could go on like this, but I have to go to work...
